Nothing To Be Ashamed Of

Soul Mantra 17In this week’s podcast, DK explores insights from the Venus retrograde: how we’re trained to apologize for being who we are and why we should all get together and stop it.

“I know I am august,
I do not trouble my spirit to vindicate itself or be understood,
I see that the elementary laws never apologize,
(I reckon I behave no prouder than the level I plant my house by, after all.)

I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content.”

— Walt Whitman, Song of Myself

Songs I Made in 2016

Playlist: DK’s 2016 Musical Output

Right as Mercury was about to station retrograde in December I promised my supporters on Patreon I would put together a playlist of the songs I had completed in 2016. This week I finally got to the project, and I have to tell you – I’m really proud of myself. I still like the songs – which is always cool – but I think I’m proudest of the fact I kept doing the work. During a year when it would have been easy to kick my inner artist out of the studio and tell him to come back later when circumstances weren’t so challenging, I didn’t do that. I honored the Muse with my perseverance and attention. And she gave gave me these lovely melodies (and a few words) to share with you.

Standing Rock: A Defining Moment for America

2016 seems destined to go down in history as one of those years when everything changed. I believe what’s happening at Standing Rock is the defining moment of this time. It encapsulates so many of the choices facing us as humans and as a society. It’s easy to boil it down to “Water vs Oil” but the stand-off at the Missouri River symbolizes so many of the burning issues of our time: institutionalized racism and state-sponsored terrorism, climate change and alternative energy, and corporate exploitation of the poor and of the ever-shrinking middle class.

Pluto and Our Collective Shadow

Pluto has been opposing the USA’s natal Sun for the last three years and will soon return to its position in the USA’s birth chart for the first time since the founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. Pluto always exposes the shadow side of things, and we are seeing America’s shadow side in the showdown at Standing Rock. This is a huge moment for the United States of America and for we the people.

Are we going to violate yet another treaty with the original people of this land? Are we going to allow what amounts to a corporate police force to continue brutalizing members of the biggest gathering of Native peoples since the Battle of Little Bighorn? (Representatives from 90 different Native American tribes have gathered at Standing Rock.)

I have strong ties to Native American spirituality; so much of what I’ve done as a people helper for the last 15 years has been informed by this tradition. I can’t in integrity leave my current obligations and stand in the flesh with my brothers and sisters (of all races) at Standing Rock. But I feel called to contribute more than my prayers.

Get a Reading, Support the Water Protectors

I usually try to come up with a cool offer as we head into the holiday season. This year I’m nearing the end of a two-year Pluto transit of my career and money zones and most of my creative energy is going towards fixing up a fixer-upper house we bought to enable our family to downsize and cut our cost of living. For the last few weeks I couldn’t think of any offer that I could actually envision finding the time and energy to follow through on.

Last week I decided to ask the angels for guidance and yesterday this inspiration struck me and I felt my whole energy shift. So here it is:

I’m donating 1/3 of the price of the first 20 readings or coaching sessions ordered between now and the Winter Solstice to help with food and medical supplies for the brave souls standing for me at Oceti Sakowin.

If you’ve been wanting to learn more about your life’s purpose, understand the opportunities and challenges awaiting you in the coming year, or give a loved one the gift of an astrology reading with me, purchase your reading here and together we’ll help sustain those who stand for the world we believe in.

 

The World Needs Your Giftedness

Jupiter in Libra: Collaboration and Community are the Keys to Prosperity

Those of us who care about the Earth, who have kindness in our hearts, who share a vision of a vibrant, healthy planet…we can no longer afford to be living on the fringes, settling for scraps.

Waiting for politicians to save us is a childish fantasy of rescue. The only people who can make it good are – and always have been – we the people.

Our next call is on Sunday, Nov. 27, a couple days before the Sagittarius New Moon. This New Moon is a fine time for activating not only more abundance but for calling in win-win partnerships and collaborators to help us expand our influence and do more good in the world.

The Taurus Supermoon

Black Moon Lilith and the Election (Part 1)

Shock? Grief? Disbelief? Anger?

Can anyone say shadow sides? On Election Day the Sun was approaching its once-a-year conjunction with Black Moon Lilith, the avenging goddess of the suppressed feminine. This conjunction became exact early this morning, and is now separating. However, Monday morning’s Super Moon is close enough to Black Moon Lilith to keep the shadow energetics high through the weekend. Continue reading

November Special: Life Purpose Reading

Discover Your Soul’s Mission in Your Birth Chart

DK also teaches astrology online to adults.The New Moon in Scorpio on October 30 – following on the heels of the Oct. 18 Mars-Pluto conjunction – opens up a very special time for getting in touch with the deepest meaning of your life and recovering your soul’s power to manifest the life you came here to live.

I’ve been thinking a lot about Pluto lately. Partly because of the recent Mars-Pluto conjunction. Partly because I’m nearing the end of a two-year Pluto transit to my natal Venus. And partly because I’m teaching astrology again and finding fresh resonance with the living archetypes symbolized by the planets. Continue reading

The Power of Getting Started

(This post is copied from my Patreon page.)

I was journaling about “just getting started” this morning, and then a few minutes ago I saw AfroDJMac’s post on the topic.

I’m usually working on 3-4 projects simultaneously. I think – being a moody Pisces – this usually works for me. When I get stuck or burned out on one song I can just move over to another one. It’s like creative cross-fertilization or crop rotation.

BUT I realized one reason I procrastinate with music stuff is that I get stuck ruminating on “Which project should I work on today?”

Subconsciously I’m weighing it up as this huge investment. Like, I’d better choose the right project or I’ll have wasted my day. In reality I’m wasting my day by not “just getting started”.

I gave myself permission to dump that old story today by saying: just pick one and set a timer for 5 minutes. If it feels like the wrong one when the timer dings, pick another one…

(I had about 40 minutes music time today. I spent 35 of them totally rockin’ out and making big progress on a live performance technique I’ve been trying to figure out! That was five hours ago and I’m still mildly buzzing from it 😆)

I’ve read – and written – quite a bit about the “just get started” thing, but I had never thought of it in terms of inertia and momentum. Whether you’re a musician or not, I think you’ll find AfroDJMac’s inertia/momentum angle helpful too.
